Just an off topic, get to know you kind of question.
I quit smokeing when I found out that I was pregnant. I gots to have my caffiene, though. I like my caffiene in the form of soft drinks , cold and bubbly LOL. I was never much of a drinker(alcohol), I get sick before I get drunk, probably because I drank too much when I was younger trying to fit in, so I figure why waste my money. When I do drink, though, I like to have a margarita. It's hard to find a bartender who knows how to make a good margarita, though.

My vices are, I drink alot of Coffee, I don't eat very healthily although I do exercise [my excuse] and I drink Alcohol ocassionally although I won't be changing any of them anytime soon as Vice's tend to improve the quality of life; although they won't do anything for my health. If my health becomes a concern, I will although they aren't too bad habits, I don't smoke or take drugs so i'm one step ahead on the health scene.
I'm a fan of beer, but I don't consider it a vice. I just like the taste of GOOD beer. Particularly stouts.
As far as vices go, I can get sucked into things sometimes. Like, if I start reading a book, I can hardly ever quit reading it, even if I absolutely hate the book. It's like I'm "wasting it" or something. I was laughtingly calling myself an idiot, the entire time I was reading Battlefield Earth. But, I read the entire 1000 shitty book. Even worse, sometimes, it happens with serieses(sp?) of books. Like Arthur C. Clarke's Rendevous with Rama. Good book. The ones after it weren't as bad as Battlefield Earth, but I still wish I had eaten them instead of reading them. It would've been more productive.
Lately, I seem to be obsessing a little over solitaire games. I had to delete Spider solitaire off my computer to prevent me from playing it too much. I tell myself one game, because a game doesn't take long. Then the first game sucks, so I say another. Then I say until I win. And, I finally play like 10 or 20 games. And, it's just solitaire, not a cool role-playing or strategy game, that is actually really fun and thought provoking.
I have to say from the start of this post that us Irish lads don't have any vices! If you believe that you'll believe anything. I was going about like a zombie for a few weeks when I started to train for my marathon. I love my coffee, chocolate, drink and every other nasty thing out there. I think my body actually went cold turkey for a while. I still am partial to all these things but I've had to cut right down. Instaed of having 20 cups of coffee a day I now only have one. Instead of eating a box of sweets I just have 2. I can't wait for the big day to come and go!
I used to be adddicted to Championship Manager for the PC a couple of years ago but a course of ECT soon snapped that out of me.

My vice is coffee. It always has been since I was a kid. I can't ever see myself giving it up even for decaf. One of my pleasures in life is to get a cafe mocha and sit in the park on a warm day. I don't get specialty coffee very often

I'm addicted to chairs, cigarettes, and fanning. I don't like to drink anymore because I've found my blood to become very thin. I smoked marijuana for a decade or so alone, and I love the feeling, but without any friends or job it's not a very good idea. Oh, and then there's this vice grip around my heart that keeps me from doing all the things I want to do in life. You may say, well, see a doctor and let the meds flow, but I really don't trust them very much.
